Maybe she managed to hide herself… She survived Crastor, and he was the worst shit I’ve ever met. She survived the long march to the Wall. She survived a White Walker for fuck’s sake!
She might have got out.
~Men of the Night’s Watch talking about Gilly’s odds of surviving the wildling sack of Mole’s Town.
For some reason this little talk the guys at Castle Black (which is turning into the zombie movie wrapped inside the fantasy film that is Game of Thrones) made me really happy.
Maybe because it’s one of the only times I recall the men in the show discussing a woman that didn’t involve sex. Not just that, but acknowledging that Gilly, soft spoken as she is, is tough as nails and resourceful.
Or maybe it was because it shut up Sam, who was busy making the probable death of a very nice girl and her infant son at the hands of cannibals all about him, and how he felt responsible.
Rocker/popster Pink may come off as one tough cookie, but it turns out the singer has an endearing soft side when it comes to her youngest fans. At her show in Philadelphia Sunday night, the singer stopped her set to comfort a little girl crying in the audience.
Pink, who was in the middle of a song, noticed the distraught child, and told her guitar player to “hold on a second.”
She called out: “Is everything okay right here? Is this little girl all right?”
Turns out the child was upset by a fight in the crowd. “Y'all are fighting around a little girl?” Pink–who is the mother of a nearly 2-year-old daughter–said incredulously.
She then walked to the edge of the stage, and offered the girl a stuffed frog toy and a Rice Krispy treat, telling her “you look beautiful!” Awww.
The youngster was too shy to come up and get the goodies, but those in front handed them back to her, to much cheers from the audience. See for yourselves:
You want a flawed and interesting female character who is not defined by those flaws? You want a complex female character with layers and depth? You want a female character who is unapolagetically herself and will not back down for anything or anyone? You want a female character that is feminine but written in a way almost only male characters are allowed to be written and represented?
